Patterned after the Christmas Eve observance at King’s College in Cambridge, England, A Festival of Lessons and Carols has become a holiday tradition for thousands of families in the Puget Sound region. This classical performance consists of nine holiday readings, each followed by a traditional carol performed by the choir, and another carol sung by the choir and audience.

A Festival of Lessons and Carols concerts are open to the public, and will run December 9-22, 2017 at various venues throughout the Puget Sound Region. Concerts have reserved seating.

Advance tickets are available through the Northwest Choirs at 206-524-3234 or online. These concerts often draw sold-out audiences. Advance ticket purchases are encouraged.
